#10323: Cyberduck incompatible with OpenSSH wildcard HostName
    Reporter:  scottsb  |      Owner:
        Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
    Priority:  low      |  Milestone:
   Component:  sftp     |    Version:  6.5.0
    Severity:  normal   |   Keywords:
Architecture:  Intel    |   Platform:  macOS 10.13
 I have these rules set up in my `.ssh/config`:

 Host *.*
 HostName %h

 Host *
 HostName %h.myservers.com

 This allows me to connect via the command line to subdomains of
 myservers.com without having to spell it out. For example:

 ssh foo    # connects to foo.myservers.com

 Yet a connection to foo.bar.com will still go straight through as normal
 because OpenSSH will match the first `Host *.*` block and stop there. This
 isn't handled correctly by Cyberduck, though. Trying to connect via SFTP
 to foo.bar.com will return the following error:

     DNS lookup for %h.myservers.com failed. DNS is the network service
 that translates a server name to its Internet address. This error is most
 often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured
 network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall
 preventing access to the network.
